This reinforced awareness could prove to be the difference between an accident happening, and one being avoided.

Alton, IL (PRWEB) June 13, 2012

SL Chapman motorcycle accident attorneys are prompting motorists across the bi-state area to “Start Seeing Motorcycles.” This caution follows the Illinois Department of Transportation’s designation of May as Motorcycle Awareness Month. Unfortunately, recent months seem to have been accompanied by an uptick in bike accidents across Illinois and Missouri roadways, and with summer officially upon us, more bikes will be sharing our roads. Illinois bike accident lawyer Brad Lakin reiterated, “IDOT’s motorcycle awareness campaign is an important initiative. Motorcycle accidents usually have devastating results and many can be avoided through better education and preparation.”

In a recent accident, a Festus, Missouri motorcycle rider lost his life after the Harley-Davidson he was riding “went off the highway, returned, and flipped.” In light of recent injuries and bike fatalities, partner Rob Evola encouraged everyone to “make a concerted effort to remember this is the time of year when more motorcyclists will be on the roads.” Evola insisted that this reinforced awareness could prove to be the “difference between an accident happening, and one being avoided.”
